Savoury Aloo Puri – Recipe

Aloo Puri recipe


During the lockdown, hubby would hunt for simple recipes on YouTube that could be had for a brunch, a lunch, or even a dinner. With just the two of us at home, cooking elaborate meals three times a day felt like a task. And, during one such hunt, he came across this recipe.

It doesn’t need too many ingredients. In fact, it tastes equally good even if you missed out on a few ingredients or added some of your own. But, you get a dish that is tasty and satisfying.

Sharing with you all the recipe today. I can’t remember where hubby found the recipe, but I would like to thank whoever shared it. I love it!

  2. I make the aloo roti but am a little averse to making anything deep fried, as I might have mentioned earlier. Just don’t know what to do with all that oil after frying, since we use a variety of oils – depending on the cuisine. Not saying I won’t eat this if you made it though! 😉

    1. Haha! Maybe someday I will make it for you, Corinne 🙂
      Yes, I remember you mentioned once you don’t prefer deep frying coz of the remaining oil. I generally use that oil for tempering in dals or sabji/curry. 🙂


  3. This looks super tasty and easy to prepare as well. I will try it out for my kids. They both love plain puri. So hope that this recipe will impress them. 🙂
    Thank you for sharing this simple and easy dish with us, Shilpa. Do share more such recipes, I would love to try them. 🙂
